With so many diets marketed as ‘the greatest diet ever’, you need to remember that diets aren’t a one size fits all solution and other factors such as skin’s elasticity need to be considered. Whilst your friends and family may have had success on a particular diet, it doesn’t mean it will actually suit you – this only leads to resentment when it doesn’t appear to work.
Lifestyles need to be factored into a weight loss journey, there is no quick fix and you will be in it for the long haul, making small adjustments along the way without even realising! Toning up loose skin is a major concern for many, but keep reading for some top tips to help skin’s elasticity when on a weight loss journey.
Over the years I have attempted many diets myself with success, but over time I get bored – especially when following a shake only diet, I missed food far to much and with much research found the Keto Lifestyle, which I really do enjoy… because I can still eat the foods I love!
So, you’ve found the diet that works for you, but what else do you need to consider?
If you have significant weight to lose, then the chances are your skin isn’t going to fall inline the same way your scales do. Don’t worry though, there are some very simple natural methods in which to help you banish baggy skin and tone up!
Drinking plenty of water goes without saying, not only does it help your skin glow and will aid most forms of diet, but it really does help skin’s elasticity. Losing weight gradually enables your skin to work with you, so it is very important to stay hydrated especially when on a diet that results in rapid weight loss as the tightening of your skin will not keep up with you! It is recommended to drink at least 6-8 glasses of water a day, as this will help your skin look smoother and more radiant.
Collagen is an abundant type of protein in our bodies that help to connect tissue – it plays a huge part in healing and strengthening skin. Therefore it will play an important part in helping tone loose skin whilst loosing weight. Whilst there are awesome creams available such as Palmer’s Cocoa Butter that help the exterior of the skin, it’s a good idea to look after the internal side too. There are natural Collagen supplements available that help not only to preserve the body’s natural collagen supply but can also help to protect skin from the sunlight damage too! I am not saying you can wind back the ageing process, but your skin will certainly be healthier! 🙂
Walking is a fantastic all-round toning exercise and best of all, it’s free! If you choose to join a gym, ensure you speak to the instructors to devise a plan that will suit you. Though to aid skin’s elasticity, weight training is a great way to help strengthen muscles and help you tone up. It helps to rebuild any muscle that you may have lost alongside fat on your weight loss journey.
Whichever diet you choose to follow, just enjoy the journey!
